The number of modern slavery victims in global supply chains today is believed to stand at around 16 million1 , roughly the same number of enslaved people as during the transatlantic slave trade in the 18th century2 . While this statistic alone is suggestive of a dire reality, it does not include other human and labour rights abuses experienced by many around the world: child labour, exploitative and unsafe work conditions, poverty due to poor wages and suppression of unionisation.
